Fernando Alonso has revealed he would be happy to be Valentino Rossi's teammate at Ferrari.

But despite rumours of trouble for his current teammate Felipe Massa, the Spaniard admitted it is not likely to happen.

"Of course, why not?" Alonso told GQ magazine when asked if he would be happy to share the Maranello based team with Italian Rossi, the multiple champion of MotoGP.

"Valentino is a great champion, but I don't think such a thing is going to happen," he added, in an interview yet to be published in print.

Ferrari and Massa regularly dismiss the speculation about the Brazilian losing his seat at the end of the 2010 season.

The latest denial was made by the 29-year-old in Korea.

"Every year people are coming in my place," Massa told the BBC. "Alonso has raced for three years already in my seat, Sebastian Vettel came for my position and Rossi again.

"So, it's no problem. Every year is the same and I'm still here," he added.
